Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop


Hello August and Hello REVERSE CONFETTI Fans!  It’s the 8th of the month – Blog Hop time! Are you ready to savor some sweet inspiration?  Grab a cuppa and take some time to enjoy this month’s creative Blog Hop from Reverse Confetti.  Last month’s release was fantastic and today we are inspiring you with projects and cards using those stamps and any other previously released stamps from Reverse Confetti.  Along with the Confetti Crew (our fabulous design team), we’ve also invited some extra friends to join in on the action!  


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Amy Kolling’s blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets!
My card features the adorable CELEBRATE CAKE set. I stamped the ice cream scoop four times in various shades of pink and peach, then trimmed them out and stacked them on a kraft-colored cone. Oh, and I also stamped each cone with one of the polka-dot backgrounds in WHOLE LOTTA DOTS. For the sentiment, I ended up stamping it three times, once on the background, once on the cone, and once on the scoop, then lining everything up during assembly. Behind the sentiment, I added a few extra stamped images for interest: a single row of the large polka dot background from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS and the notebook lines from ARROWS 'N ELEMENTS







My layout is based on the current CAS(e) this Sketch challenge, #39, and the color palette is, once again, inspired by the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Watermelon Wonder.






I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! Now it’s time to hop on over to Amy Tsuruta’s blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog
